The tandem of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim thanked fans for the overwhelming support in their latest movie BRIDE FOR RENT. In two weeks, the Star Cinema movie has grossed P280 million at the box office. It is now the highest-grossing opening film of Star Cinema, and of KimXi as well.
"Thank you sa lahat ng staff, sa crew, of course sa Mama ko. Kung nassan man siya ngayon, thank you so much kasi alam ko gina-guide niya ako simula nang nawala siya. Nung Bakit Hindi Ka Crush, maganda ang tanggap ng tao tapos ito ulit," an emotional Kim said during the movie's victory celebration.
In just a week after release, Bride for Rent has raked in P200 million. Bride for Rent is expected to hit P300 million if the warm support of viewers still continue.
Directed by Mae Czarina Cruz and written by Carmi Raymundo, the movie also stars Pilita Corrales, Tirso Cruz III, Dennis Padilla, Matt Evans, Martin del Rosario, and Empoy Marquez.
Meanwhile, with the successes of their first two movies, Star Cinema is trusting another big screen project to Kim and Xian this year. They may be separated on television for now (as Kim is pairing with Coco for the first time in the teleserye Ikaw Lamang) but fans will get to see them in movies.
The still untitled movie will start filming this year (WATCH THE BANDILA REPORT HERE).
